MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Jan. 7, 2015) - Alongside the 2015 Montreal International Auto Show, Alliance AutoPropane is pleased to invite media and selected guests to a launch cocktail and exclusive inside look at the growing use of propane as an automobile fuel and at its future as a reliable, economically advantageous, and cleaner alternative to gasoline.

Alliance AutoPropane is a member of Alliance AutoGas, the leading network of propane suppliers in the U.S. and the largest of its kind in North America, with established partnerships with over 100 companies. The organization is dedicated to the retail sale of propane gas for automotive vehicles and to the conversion of conventional engines into hybrid propane/gasoline powered units. It is Eastern Canada's number-one advocate of propane as a proven gasoline replacement for reasons of cost, safety, and environmental impact.

Alliance AutoPropane members are presently enjoying dramatic reductions of their fuel bills. With a price difference between propane and gasoline of more than 65 cents per liter in recent years, the low cost of autogas consistently yields average fuel cost savings of 40%. Additionally, because propane has a cleaner burn than gasoline and a higher octane rating, users benefit from lower engine maintenance costs.

Propane is now one of the safest fuels on the market, regardless of category. New users are often surprised to learn that it is significantly less explosive than gasoline, due to its much higher combustion point. Autogas tanks not only meet Transport Canada standards, but also are 20 times more impact resistant than gasoline tanks. Furthermore, the cutting-edge pressure regulators and safety valves of modern propane supply systems virtually eliminate the possibility of excessive pressure and leaks.

Propane's clean burn produces much less pollution and greenhouse emissions by as much as 25% than gasoline or diesel, diminishing the release of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide and smug-causing hydrocarbons. In addition to the greener qualities of the gas itself, the production and distribution of propane has a much smaller ecological footprint than the manufacturing and transportation of gasoline.

As a testament to propane's reliability and clean track record, there are no restrictions on the use of propane-powered vehicles on Quebec's public roads.

To facilitate the transition of gasoline vehicles to propane, Alliance AutoPropane has established Quebec's largest and most advanced network of certified conversion centers. The organization's quality standards to transform conventional engines into propane hybrids are the highest in the industry, with an average cost of $6,000 per vehicle, which can often be amortized through fuel savings in 12 to 18 months, depending on personal gasoline consumption.

During the cocktail, Alliance AutoPropane will present its Quebec, Ontario and American partners while revealing its list of certified conversion centers and propane suppliers. Discover how the organization continues to assist its clients and partners to live up to its three principal commitments:

Go far, spend less - Go far, pollute less - Go far, be safer.
